Belize Island Glamping and Jungle Adventure

Needs a location

Glamp on a remote Caribbean island paradise, explore the rainforest jungle, and uncover ancient Mayan ruins on our 8 Day, Women Only, Small Group Adventure Tour in Belize. Your adventure in Belize will encompass the best adrenaline pumping jungle activities on the mainland and the serene, remote island experience in the middle of the Caribbean Sea on a UNESCO designated Marine Preserve. During the first half of your adventure you’ll explore Mayan ruins, navigate caves featuring 3,000 year old artifacts, and immerse yourself in the Belizean Jungle embarking on new adventures each day. You’ll learn to rappel and descend 250 feet from the top of a waterfall with views as far as the turquoise Caribbean Sea. You’ll zip-line 2.5 miles through Bocawina National Park over the jungle canopy enjoying Belize from a bird’s eye view. You’ll channel your inner Indiana Jones as you strap on your headlamp and step back in time 3,000 years into the depths of a cave with Mayan artifacts and ceremonial alters. To top it off, you’ll wander the archaeological grounds of Xunantunich where an ancient civilization of over 200,000 people thrived until 1,000 years ago when it was mysteriously abandoned. During your adventures on the mainland, you’ll stay in a Rainforest Eco-Lodge powered completely by hydroelectricity and solar with your gang of Explorer Chick gal pals. On the second half of your Belize Adventure, you’ll be whisked away from the mainland and travel by boat 36 miles to a remote island Glamping base camp for the next 5 days and 4 nights. Glover’s Reef Marine Preserve is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is 1 of only 4 atolls in the western hemisphere. The turquoise waters are host to over 700 patch reefs and is considered one of the richest tropical marine environments in the Caribbean. The waters here are exceptionally clear because of its isolation from the mainland making it a utopia for spotting marine life and water activities. Hello, coral reefs and all the fishies! 🐠 Your days will be filled with water activities exploring your remote island paradise. You’ll grab snorkel gear and head out on a SUP to swim with sea turtles and colorful fish. You’ll learn to use the wind to your advantage and kayak sail to coral destinations. You’ll master the technique of line fishing from a local Belizean guides and cook up your catch for dinner. Or you can just kick it in a hammock with a good book as the wind rocks you gently. Oh, and you bet there will be dance parties as you learn Garifuna moves. 💃 #SHEnanigans But what really makes these last 5 days special is your home away from home on a remote, 13 acre island. Your digs are Pinterest worthy tent-walled cabanas equipped with real beds, wooden floors, a porch, and that essential ocean view right outside your screened door. 👌 You’ll go to sleep each night to the sound of the sea lapping the shore from your tent-walled Cabana. Wake up each day to views of the Caribbean and you’ll quickly learn a new definition of paradise. You’ll soon embrace the Belizean way of life devoid of chaos and spend your days on Ocean Time. This is not to say our days will be spent like a fly and flop vacation tanning on the beach. Heck No! Your days will be filled with the perfect amount of activity and relaxation to give you the ultimate and authentic Caribbean Island experience off the coast of Belize.
